Reputation for on-time delivery, well-maintained equipment, and great customer service, as well as all rentals include starting assets, glow plugs, dual batteries, protected hoses, and other ancillary features. Speed of service and deliveries separates Kropp from other rental equipment companies in the marketplace. 

Timeliness and Convenience
We care as much as you do about getting your job done on time and our built-out logistics team ensures consistent delivery timing directly to customer job sites. We ask our Drivers to begin their shift at 2 AM so that in the vast majority of cases your lift will arrive on the jobsite even before you do.

Quality and Reliability
Proactive equipment maintenance and on and off-site servicing has established the highest of quality standards, distinguishing Kropp Equipment from our regional peers. At any given time, roughly only 3% of the total fleet is undergoing maintenance or repairs.  

We are always looking to add brand new machines to our fleet to replace older ones so you can rely on each and every machine rented from us.

We work with some of the finest equipment manufacturers such as Genie, JLG, and Skyjack so you always have the highest quality equipment.

Customer-focused Mindset
A “customer first” mentality has contributed to a flow of large recurring customers and new customer referrals.

When working with us our customers can tell that we truly care about providing a hassle-free experience.

We hope that our customers see that these cornerstones, borne through our family values, yield a substantial competitive advantage in the marketplace through the establishment of a highly trusted rental equipment provider.
